Why B2B software-as-a-service are of particular interest for global VCs

The year 2022 was exceptionally challenging for the tech world. Many SaaS startups have suffered from increased economic pressure and have had to lay off employees. Nevertheless, a large number of venture capital investors continue to believe in the success of B2B SaaS companies. This is especially due to the prospects of predictable recurring revenues. Business customers, once acquired, are considered reliable and well-paying clientele. B2B SaaS startups will therefore continue to be very popular in the digital environment.
